Desi Napa is giving California competition


A Deccan Herald reporter certainly believes so. During her visit to Grovers Vineyards at their 15th harvest celebration. According to Abhay Kewadkar, winemaker of Gover Vineyards, “The 2006 harvest is good because of lower temperatures after a good monsoon last year. This has resulted in cooler nights and a humidity of 50% which is good for the grapes. In 2002 to 2004 the monsoons were poor and this caused a higher alcohol percentage which is higher than desired for a good wine. This year the balance will be perfect and the maturing too is being achieved slowly ensuring good character in our wines.” Read the article on one of India’s wine success stories.
